The rewards are pretty lacklustre but free stuff is never that bad, see it just as a bonus as they are not worth making any real effort for.

Depends on the motivation, I work hard for what matters to me.

Atleast i got a ship this year from the T10 snowflakes, so its not completely worthless.

Got a few times Doubloons aswell, which is nice for me as a F2P-player.

The Free XP, coal, and doubloons that you occasionally get are quite worthwhile; even the less impressive cammo can be sold for silver (which helps if you recently blew all your silver reserves on high tier ships <looks sheepish>)...

It wasn't entirely easy, but getting a butt-load of Free XP from some crates a while ago contributed...!

 

(By 'run out' I mean got down to single figures millions).

I dropped a California out of my crates plus some dubs.

A friend dropped similar but a Viribus Unitis.

 

Another 4 people I know didnt get much of anything.

Your mileage may vary.

from 36 tier 10s got only camo and flags (and not even some the good camo and flags) and some dubs (not much)... so it depends very much on your luck...

Maybe by not playing 24/7 like some of people with 20k battles?

You seem to have little understanding of F2P economics. If you grind everything you have in this game, you are always short on silver or XP.

I also got one, the Molotov. Very happy with that, real ship, served, earned its medals.

Haven´t played it yet apart from the one snowflake-coop, but since it is Kirov´s half-sister it should be fine :cap_tea:

Congrats.

Doesn't it have Donskoi guns and zero armor?

Having been disappointed with Santa crates I wasn't expecting much from my 10 snowflakes, so to say I was surprised to get the Neustrashimy would be an understatement. Just play them in CO-OP, it's fast and painless, what do you have to lose.

That´s what I heard too. The guns seem to be the same but with less range ofc. And zero armor is standard with the usual mid-tier cruiser. Glas-cannon.

Zero armor and turning radius 404 not found is shared with Kirov, but yes, she's having Donskoi guns. Or rather, all three are using the same guns, but Kirov has lowered shell velocity, as WG *gasp* not only skipped russian bias, but also historical accuracy and actually went for balance approach.

 

Molotov is shorter ranged than Kirov and Budyonny though, so spotter might come in handy more often than not.

You decide.

(This also contains five crates obtained in-game through different means than snowflaking, since I only have 34 Tier Xs. However, those five did not drop any doubloons, nor premium days.)

The first 20 gave me 60 Days of Premium time. That was quite good. Try your Luck!

 

The thing is, if you have only a few T10s it may be quite the disappointment for you if there are only some meager camos in the containers.

Not a hint of a ship so far, nor premium time.

 

The 10k Free XP drop has been common for me and quite disappointing, but I like the 50 x Papa Papa ones, as combined with the +200% first win bonus and some decent camo, they've allowed me to earn about 2k Free XP per game, without the need for special signals.

 

But yeah, 4 camos is bad.
